      THE BACKGROUND OF THE AGING VOICE – IMPLICATIONS IN INTENSIVE CARE PROCEDURES (Abstract). Age related changes of the phonatory apparatus determine anatomo-histo-clinical modifications and consequent to their manifestations, phonatory or respiratory functional disorders corresponding to the pathological process, computed tomography (CT) examination. The changes that the phonatory organs undergo as they age change the local anatomy and can pose special problems in performing anesthesia and intensive care maneuvers. The working methodology is to search for the reflection of the presbyopia problems treated in “last minute” specialized studies, which in this case “translates” into specialized studies in anatomy, studies that treat imaging explorations and clinical and pathological studies on the phenomena. The most common changes in the voice, as we age, are higher or lower pitch voice, reduced volume and amplitude of the voice, reduced phonetic endurance, tremor or shakiness in the voice, reduced hearing ability. In the same time phonatory trauma after oro-tracheal intubation are more common in the elderly population. The changes that the phonatory organs undergo as they age change the local anatomy and can pose special problems in performing anesthesia and intensive care maneuvers.
